True Thank You - Help for Oklahoma

One of the things I just LOVE about Close to My Heart is their generous giving spirit. They have made it so easy to help those affected by the May tornado that tore through Oklahoma. Close To My Heart is making a new Autumn/Winter 2013 stamp set, A True Thank You, available immediately and will donate 100% of the profits from sales of the set from May 23 through June 30 to the American Red Cross to aid the Oklahoma victims.


I couldn't wait to order several of these little cuties. These make great gifts, stocking stuffers and more! But best of all, they make cute thank you cards! Tonight I sat down and created this card:

I used the sketch from Clean and Simple and the colors from the Paper Players Challenge.

I stamped the "thank YOU" several times in Cocoa pigment ink onto the card. Next, I stamped it three more times onto a piece of White Daisy card stock and then used Close to My Heart's Sorbet, Creme Brulee and Lagoon alcohol markers to color the "YOU". I then cut out each colored "YOU" and used foam tape to adhere to the top of the sentiment. The ribbon is from the now retired Cocoa Ribbon Collection. 

Help us provide relief to those affected by the devastating Oklahoma tornado by purchasing one or more A True Thank You stamp set for $2.95 (M1029) today!
